​As our world continues rapidly expanding, the topic of green initiatives is becoming more and more paramount.

Fuji Xerox introduced this initiaitvie to accelerate its progress in reducing environmental impact of their various business activities and t every stage of their products’ life-cycle.

Challenge Eco No. 1 is a bottom-up approach to instill one of the Company’s Shared Values —Environmental Consciousness – in each Fuji Xerox employee as well as the entire value chain.

The chairman of panel of jury  for the 2016 ACES Awards, Hermant Batra was very impressed with the efforts Fuji Xerox have made.

“It is evident that Fuji Xerox runs its business operations while creating a positive environment impact and in pursuing global standards of a sustainable operating method,” Batra says.

“The environment is our most important business partner and with a circular green business approach, all employees can create direct, meaningful and sustained environmental value on a daily basis at every stage of our value chain,” says Yaz Kuroha, general manager for the management quality office, Fuji Xerox APAC.

“Winning this award would not have been possible without the dedication, innovative thinking and hard work from every Fuji Xerox employee, and we will continue to challenge ourselves to do better. For us, sustainability has become a way of life.”
